Our D&I Mission Statement
We are a creative organisation that connects two disciplines: television and advertising.
For two disciplines that are meant to hold up a mirror to our modern and multi-cultural society, these industries have been too white, too London-centric, too cis, too middle class, and too able-bodied for too long. It is our unique responsibility to offer opportunities that champion diversity, not only in our company but the work that we produce as well.
Endorsement of timeTo
Wonderhood Studios is an official endorser of timeTo - a campaign to end sexual harassment in advertising and marketing, set up by WACL, NABS and the Advertising Association in 2018.
Sexual harassment must never be tolerated. We firmly believe that everybody should feel safe and comfortable at work, both within our organisation and in our wider industry. It is down to all of us to do what we can to recognise, report and end sexual harassment at work.
